Just Released: BOMA 2017 Office Standard

As office buildings continue to evolve with complex architectural designs and growing tenant demands for amenity-rich building features, accurate measurements are more critical than ever. BOMA International has just released the newest version of its office standard, BOMA 2017 for Office Buildings: Standard Methods of Measurement (ANSI/BOMA Z65.1—2017). The new office standard features many new enhancements to address the changing office building landscape, including:

  • An easy-to-follow, step-by-step layout rewritten in simplified language with helpful hints, additional illustrations and an expanded Glossary of Terms;
  • Best practice guidance developed following the publication of the 2010 Office Standard to address ambiguities;
  • Compatibility with the International Property Measurement Standard for Office Buildings; and New guidance on tenant amenities, such as rooftop terraces, balconies and covered galleries.
